witnesses or laws talk about the kids. it was all about the money, the benefits and the fact they want another legislative debate. >> the reason i notice that many of the teachers are good both my sisters in-law are teachers. my wife taught when she was much younger. not only are we not getting mea mark choice and competition, but this money issue, which seems to phony to me, there's a $3.6 billion dr $3.6 billion budget in louisiana, but only 22 million is being used by these vouchers. so obviously the state board has plenty of fiscal latitude to let these kids and their parents make the right choices. it's not a money issue. not at all. one of the arts is the voucher program is taking money from the local school districts. the fact is, larry, this year the local school districts have more money than last year. that's a pretense. all they're trying to do is relitigate the issue and trying to find a way to stop choice. you know why? if you let those market forces flourish, you will force competition. you will force the school district to do what they should. fire bad teachers and rewar
with current law. up until that point. and this problem has compounded. we are seeing similarities with benghazi, and we hope that whoever served as secretary of state in our next congress will make security a top priority. and we hope that finally, families, diplomatic families will once again hopefully the first time really ever, receive a support that they need and the attention they so very much deserve. this is far above politics for us. as families we lost a great deal. diplomatic families make huge sacrifices and they serve with our military abroad, all over the world, hand-in-hand. what has become' increasingly more dangerous environment. >> sean: we have these two instances and so many similarities. first of all, all these requests for security were denied beforehand. then you have an account ability report, another government study, you are saying that if it were followed and we learned the lessons where you lost these two people in your life, perhaps the people in benghazi wouldn't have had to go through this. is that fair or am i overstating it? >> i think it is absolut
they say that with a straight face? meantime, over in wisconsin, a voter i.d. law was rejected by the courts but today the incoming assembly speaker was asked if it would be worth changing the constitution. he replied, quote, yes, i would favor that. over in north carolina the president of a conservative group ask preand that governor pat mccrory will sign, will establish a photo i.d. law like last year. like i said on election night, the fight goes on. they will keep coming but we'll be ready. we've come too far to stop fighting for our voting rights now. i gave birth to my daughter on may 18th, five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

because it would allow american government to impose new laws on disabled home school children. there is no wording that hints that either one of those things could be true. for some of the senators the real reasoning was because they believe the treaty is part of a vast conspiracy. >> vast conspiracy to tell us that the world is round. everybody knows that ain't so. we could fall right off. >> stephanie: bob dole came to show his support for the treaty. john mccain even voted for it. there they are. >> blue helmets and black helicopters everywhere you look. >> stephanie: you know what? what a perfect day to have spongebob squarepants on the show with a message for republicans. ♪ spongebob here ♪ ♪ kris means presents and mistletoe ♪ ♪ sharing and caring ♪ ♪ during this season, please, don't be a jerk ♪ ♪ bring joy to the world it's the thing to do ♪ ♪ the world does not revolve around you ♪ ♪ don't be a jerk ♪ ♪ it's christmas ♪ ♪ there's a sign above the line that says expr
to be the backbone, the centerpiece of egypt's democratic transition. all of egypt's laws are going to be based on this document. everything from the balance of power between the president and the parliament, the power of the army, the independence of the judiciary, the personal freedoms. once this draft is approved and all indications are it is going to be approved. in about 15 days you're going to have a nationwide referendum. all egyptians are going to have an opportunity to vote yes or no. that all sounds great initially there was 100 member panel designed to draft this constitution. it was dominated by islamists. many liberals quit in protest. some sued to dissolve the panel. you'll recall one of the controversial decrees announced by mr. morsi last week banned any authority, even the judiciary, from disbanding this panel. he wants it moved forward, suzanne, and one of the messages, he is aggressively pushing now is once have you this nationwide referendum, about 15 days and it's a yes vote, all those controversial decrees that people were upset about will be canceled immediately. he is ho

that option open. so while it's technically not illegal under international law for him to have this capability these are very, very dangerous products. gregg: speaking of illegal, people who commit crimes against humanity, war crimes are held in the dock at the international criminal court in the hague. there is talk now that bashar al-assad may try to seek asylum. should the u.s. position be no, you must be held to account for what you've done, or let's just get him out of here? >> well, i don't think the international criminal court is a legitimate organization under any circumstances, but in this case i think it posts the hard question whether this determination to prosecute somebody doesn't cause more death and destruction than giving somebody like bashar al-assad immunity, getting them out of the country and trying to end this conflict. the problem is it's hard to see who can give him that real grant, maybe the russians and that's why there is reporting that they are talking to bashar al-assad. but one reason i think he and other dictators tend to stay to the end is they d
. though they still need to work that out with the federal government which has laws that still supersede those. california reformed its three strikes law which had sent millions of monoviol nonviolent users to jails for decades. it's dawning on voters, judges cops, politicians that imprisoning people doesn't work. after all the billions spent and the millions of arrests and incarcerated people, drugs remain cheap, potent and easily purchased and the financial and spiritual cost of imprisoning more people than any other nation in the world is not sustainable. our next guest wrote a great new york magazine cover story about the future of the war on druks titled "the truce on drugs." we can only hope. benjamin wallace wells, ho aw a you, sir? >> i'm great. >> i'm thrilled by the movement away from prohibition. not because i want to get high. not because there's people who want to get high and can't because it's illegal, that's certainly not the case. but because it does not work when we treat marijuana differently from alcohol. is that correct? >> i think that is correct. one of the things
. right now congress can pass a law that would prevent a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. everybody. that means 98% of americans, 97% of small businesses, wouldn't see their income taxes go up by a single dime. because 98% of americans make $250,000 a year or less. 97% of small businesses make $250,000 a year or lessp. if you say income taxes don't go up for any income above $250,000, the vast majority of americans, they don't see a tax hike. but here's the thing. even the top 2%, even folks who make more than $250,000, they'd still keep their tax cut on the first $250,000 of income. it would still be better off for them too for us to go ahead and get that done. families would have a sense of security going into the new year. companies like this, would know what to expect in terms of planning for next year and the year after. that means people's jobs would be secure. the sooner congress gets this done, the sooner our economy will get a boost. and it will then give us in washington more time to work together on that long-range plan to bring down deficits in a bala
